In honor of the Shameless series finale, Mickey’s actor Noel Fisher took to Instagram to share photos with each cast member along with a special caption. “The troublemaker with a heart of gold. Carl is a Milkovich/Gallagher hybrid if there ever was one. Part hustler, part Robin Hood,” the actor wrote in the caption, referencing Ethan Cutkosky’s Carl Gallagher character.
This manages to capture perfectly why the duo would stand out: Carl had so many similarities to Mickey so it would have been fantastic to see her and get more scenes as a brother-in-law after marrying Ian.
The photo caught the eye of Reddit user u/Joey3611, who posted the image with the words “Wish we had more of this duo.” It wasn’t long before other viewers commented and agreed. Who wouldn’t want more of Fisher and Cutkosky together? Frankly, Mickey and Carl were an underrated duo, as a number of fans posited.
“Didn’t know until you mentioned it, but yeah, definitely. There could have been a fun story if they worked together or something,” u/mizzmadhatter replied. Other users, like u/amayagab, cited certain moments like the season 11 premiere where Carl was first arrested as a new cop and Mickey jokingly berated him while everyone else congratulated him on his good work.
